The relationship between aplastic anaemia (AA) and pregnancy remains uncertain. To assess whether an association between pregnancy and severe aplastic anaemia (SAA) exists, we compared the frequency of pregnancy in 35 young women with newly diagnosed SAA with the expected frequency in the general population. The observed pregnancy rate in the SAA group was 3-6%. This percentage approximates the expected pregnancy rate of 4.4% in the general population and is not compatible with a strong association between pregnancy and SAA.
